It's been an emotional week for residents of Maine, as we prayed for the safe return of a missing teen and cried when we learned of her death. And now, as we all deal with the harsh realities of the outcome, it's time to figure out how to cope, how to grieve, and how to let it go. I think Patty Loveless expressed it best in this song, one of my favorites.

I think many Mainers tonight hugged their children and counted their blessings. As the details of this terrible crime unfold, we'll do that again and again. Never take for granted the people that you love and the ones who love you. Every day is precious.

My thoughts tonight are with the family and friends of Nichole Cable. We're all so very sorry for your loss. May your memories help you to say good-bye.
